*CSI: Cold Burn* was an easy reading that didn't dwell too much on forensic jargon and processes. There were processes but they were simplified so that readers can still feel connected to the stories.

Gil and Sara have flown to New York for a forensic conference. However, just as soon as they landed, a blizzard is just now starting. They make it to the hotel. Restless, Sara and Gil take a short walk around the hotel. However, their stroll is interrupted when they discovered a murdered and burnt body.

With the conference cancelled, due to the non-stop blizzard, Sara and Gil preserve evidence surrounding the burnt body with haste. They also have to improvise to make their own homemade forensic lab.

Meanwhile, back in Las Vegas, a woman has been found, dead, at a park near Lake Mead. Catherine and the gang have found the crime scene to be odd. Apparently, the woman had been frozen and then wetted down before being dumped. The forensic team discovered that this particular woman had been missing for a year.

Both were good stories. I think I liked the one with Gil and Sara. With the help of a Canadian forensic specialist, it felt like they were playing Clue. You know, so-and-so killed and burned this guy with this weapon in this room. Of course, everyone had a different theory.

Like I said, *CSI:Cold Burn* was an easy and enjoyable read.
